Faking It by Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde
Publication Date: April 11th, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Confirmed bachelor Max Sterling isn't into rescuing damsels in distress, but when the very tempting Hailey Ellison needs his help, there's only one thing for him to do. Step in and pose as her loving fiancé. Except there is nothing fake about his attraction to her, or how much he wants her beneath him in his bed, moaning his name. But what starts as a sexy, flirty, temporary engagement, quickly becomes something more serious that neither one ever anticipated.

Max was going straight to hell for lusting after another man's fiancée. He was absolutely sure of it.
As he followed Hailey out of the three story building she was about to purchase, he berated himself for allowing his attraction to this engaged woman to obliterate any self-control he'd had over his physical response to her. Just because he'd had her soft, curvy body pressed intimately against his a few minutes ago—okay, plastered against him would be a more apt description—it was no excuse for his unruly dick to leap to immediate attention.
Yeah, bad choice of words, but leap it did, without his goddamn permission and before he could fully process what was happening—beyond the instantaneous knowledge that Hailey Ellison fit against his body as if she'd been created specifically for him to fuck. In a matter of seconds, the surge of heat and awareness brought on by having her full, lush breasts crushing against his chest, and her hips aligned so perfectly to his, had his cock perking up and responding to all that physical stimulation.
God, he was such an asshole. It wasn't enough that he'd gotten a boner, but in that brief moment he'd imagined what it would be like to take the embrace one or two steps further. To back her up against the nearest wall and slide one hand beneath the hem of her very prim and proper black skirt that hugged her hips and flared out around her knees. To wrap that thick, silky looking hair of hers around his other fist to pull her head back so his mouth would have unobstructed access to the creamy expanse of her throat, while his fingers slipped beneath the edge of her panties and touched her intimately, deeply.
See? He was totally going to hell.
Regretfully, and out of respect, he'd pushed her away. Because it was the right thing to do and the last thing he wanted was for her to realize his dick was hard. But mostly, he'd ended the embrace—no matter how innocent she'd believed the gesture was—because he had absolutely no business coveting another man's fiancée.
Yet, as she walked a few steps ahead of him, his disobedient gaze strayed from all that luxurious hair tumbling down her back and traced along the indentation of her waist. He shamelessly watched the mesmerizing sway of her hips, the perfect curve of her ass that made his palms itch to grab, caress, and smack just hard enough to make her gasp, then moan . . .
Jesus, Christ, he thought with a firm shake of his head. What was he? A goddamn hormonal teenager who had no discipline when it came to a girl he was attracted to? It certainly felt that way, and he needed to get his shit together, like now.
5 Stars from Renee!
I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, naughty fun, and heartbreak.
This is Hailey and Max‘s story. Hailey needs Max’s help and normally he is not about helping but for Hailey he will. He has wanted Hailey for month but thought she was taken. Now that he knows she is not taken he is all about convincing her that he is the one for her. They both have things they are running from and faking it would help them both out. What happens when touches feel more than pretend? Can Max convince her to trust him and let him in? Can Hailey allow herself to fall for Max?
I loved these characters and the side characters. I felt I could connect with the characters and the story was a great read.
I highly recommend this book.
5 Stars from Brianna!
I expect magic when these two write together. They are my go to in erotic and contemporary romance. I have high expectations for these two... And they always deliver. They are amazing on their own but when they collaborate... holy smokes! Just sheer brilliance!
Faking It was a sexy, sweet, fun, and fantastic romance that made me swoon and fall head heels in love. This book was so good... light and steamy with dashes of angst and tugs to the heart to keep me on my toes the entire story.
You're only faking it until the heart gets involved...
Max and Hailey were only supposed to be fake... temporary... with an expiration date. But nothing ever goes as planned. The problem? It is starting to feel.... real.
Lines are crossed.
Boundaries are broken.
Hearts are involved.
It's about to get very.... real.
I highly recommend this book.
